21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Penny Sweater from Dr. Horrible on: November 29, 2008 05:10:12 PM
I recently finished this embroidery project for one of my classes. I did the sweater worn by the character Penny in Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog since I was planning on making the entire costume anyway.

Aaannd the original sweater from the show:

There are a couple of great online resources for Dr. Horrible costumes. Here are a few of them:

Good luck! My fiance and I are going to be Penny and Dr. Horrible this Halloween!

I LOVE THAT!  OMG, that would even look good on MY frame....

I know you said you drafted the pattern from a sloper....is there any type of pattern it's similar to? I so want to make one, but pleats scare me (in being a lot of work, I mean)

Hm..I'm not sure. I suppose some kind of leotard could work. My suit has shorts under it instead (which is a whole other drafting thing than a leotard) Any kind of one piece swimsuit could be slashed apart at the waist line and sewn back together with a skirt in it.

Thank you all!

Great looking,
but could we please PLEASE see a photo of what it truly looks like from the back?
Did you square the neckline or is it a "V"? I can't quite make it out.
It's a smaller square neck in the back. Smiley

You remind me of Sailor Moon. Well, not Sailor Moon, that one in blue. I don't know them all.

Where did you find the perfect navy spandex?

Maybe Sailor Mercury? XD
I found the spandex at Lorraine Fabrics in Pawtucket, RI.

I recently finished this bathing suit for my Functional Clothing class at school. I drafted the pattern myself from a sloper block. The suit has a built in shelf bra, an attached knife pleated skirt, and attached boy cut shorts under the skirt. It's all made of spandex. I really love the modesty of it and that I can walk around in it and not feel self conscious at all!

My fiance and I wear matching platinum and CZ rings that we picked out together. We tried to go for something that was asexual, but it looks a little more feminine on him than I had hoped for. However he loves the ring and wears it proudly.

My fiance and I just received the rings we bought together. I'm very excited to finally be engaged. He likes to tell me that he was ready to marry me a year after he met me and we've been together for 5 1/2 years, so I'm happy we've finally taken the next step.
Our wedding won't be for at least 3 years since we'd like to wait until I'm finished with college and he's done with his second degree. I'm 21 and he is 23.
I have a few ideas about the wedding. I'd like it to be as fun as possible not only for us, but for the guests as well. I'm thinking about having it in my parents yard (since it's huge and lavishly decorated) with lots of lawn games, kind of a picnic or camping theme. Who knows though, the more untraditional the better, I say! I come from a family with lots of cousins, and I'd be the second of 11 to get married so far, so there will be a lot of "normal" weddings to have to sit through! I want mine to set the standard of awesomeness!

SO CUTE! The pockets are my favorite.

Ps. My uncle used to call me Laurasaurus when I was a kid XD

Here are some completed pictures of the plaid dress! It looks a bit weird on my dressform. I think it needs human legs to flesh it out XD

30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 3 Final projects for 3 sewing classes (updated Plaid dress pictures pg.2) on: November 15, 2007 10:29:48 AM
Hi all.
I've been a lurker here for a long time, and never got around to actually posting some of the stuff I've made.
I mostly do costumes and Lolita clothing, but last semester I made three pieces of "normal" clothing. XD
I am majoring in Fashion Design at Framingham State College. I am currently a junior. These garments were made in the second semester of my sophomore year. It was the most fun I'd ever had in a semester! My only classes were my sewing classes, so I was in my glory!
Anyway, onto the projects....

1.Flat Pattern design final project.
This dress is made of silver tafetta with silver tulle under the skirt part. I drafted the pattern from a sloper. It's hard to see in the picture, but the bodice has pintucks that go in different directions in each panel. It took a long time to shape the pattern pieces because I had to fold each piece of paper into the tucks, then trace the pattern on top of it. Some of my pattern pieces looked like trees!

2. Draping final project
This dress was inspired by the fabric. I just adore it. The plaid is a super stretchy spandex with a bias print. I didn't have much of it, so I couldn't do as full of a train as I wanted. The pictures I have are in progress pictures, I haven't gotten a chance to photograph it completed yet. The final piece is pretty similar, except there is a black band around the bustline and at the hipline where the skirt attaches, and a cute bow where the slit is. The cool thing about this dress is that the draped train detaches to make it into a short mini-dress. My favorite part is the spiraled bodice though, it was really fun to drape that.

3.Tailoring Final Project
This outfit was made from two Vogue patterns. The fabric is 100% wool with a silk lining. The jacket and skirt was made using couture techniques such as padstitching, hand bound buttonholes, fell stitched twill tape around the outside seam lines, and hand made shoulder pads. The skirt has a taped hem with a lining and a bias finished facing. It was such a great learning experience!

Thanks for looking!
